New York rockers Cymbals Eat Guitars have never been part of a particular city “scene” (they do, after all, call Staten Island home), but the group has been producing solid, unique indie rock since it formed in 2009. The group’s third album, this year’s Lose, is Cymbals Eat Guitars’ most impressive work to date: Built to Spill-like guitar heroics sit alongside bursts of pure pop perfection. Led by Joseph D’Agostino, the band’s current lineup includes Andrew Dole, Matt Whipple, and Brian Hamilton. Live, expect some serious ax work and a hipster or two busting a move. The show is all-ages and Alex G opens.
